Goa: Cane farmer turns ‘swayampurna’, starts jaggery unit after Sanjivani factory shut

When most sugarcane farmers found themselves in the lurch following the suspension of operations at the Sanjivani sugar factory, 58-year-old Uday Prabhudesai decided to use the situation to his advantage. Donning an entrepreneurial hat in true ‘atmanirbhar’ (self-reliant) fashion, the Pernem-based sugarcane farmer set up his own jaggery unit in Korgao, on Tuesday.
